Colossus


xbmckodi-colossusLogoColossus

Colossus for XBMC/Kodi is a great repo with a bit of everything; you’re favourite movies, the latest television shows and of course, live television streams. Of particular note, users installing this repo will find the Covenant add-on, which is the latest release from the lambda camp. For those unfamiliar, lambda is the developer responsible for Genesis, which now goes by Specto and of course the number one add-on in Kodi, EXODUS. With the addition of Covenant, Exodus will no longer be supported. With all that out of the way, let’s move on to the install tutorial

Step 1:

From the home screen navigate to;

  • System (icon top left corner)

xbmckodi-krypton-settings button home screen

Step 2:

This is your System menu window with a much different look from previous xbmc/kodi versions. From the 11 menu items to choose from, locate and select the folder that says

  • File Manager

Step 3:

On the Right Panel scroll down and select the menu item that says;

  • Add source

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-file manager add source

Step 4:

This will open your Add File Source Window. Go ahead and select where is says < None >

You will now be asked to Enter the paths of browse for the media locations.

Step 6:

Insert the following path exactly as it’s written in the field provided;

Alternatively, you can find this repo by installing the Dimitrology Repository

Step 7:

You will now need to name your media source. Click in the blank field underneath the Enter a name for this media source heading and name this Repo;

  • .colossus
  • select ok

Step 8:

If you haven’t completed the next step, already, we now need to enable downloading fromm an unknown source (if you have, skip ahead to Step 13: ). Go back to your home screen once again and select the System icon at the top of your screen

Step11:

The add-ons Unknown sources is disabled by default. We want to turn it on. You can do this by selecting the Unknown sources field.

Step 12:

Once the Unknown Sources is enabled, a pop up window will open warning you of the hazards of 3rd part add-ons

Note: The developers of Kodi are posting this warning here as they do not endorse or support any 3rd party add-ons themselves. Kodi is an open source media player and anyone with the know how can post information/media sources to it. All the source links used by 3rd part add-ons are available online. The developers of these 3rd party add-ons are just pointing the media to this shared source link. I myself have never had any issues with malware or cyber attacks via kodi. I always recommend using a VPN for your internet security and do your best to research any 3rd party add-ons you wish to install. At least I do. I visit multiple forums to see what other users are saying about the add-on before I recommend it to anyone using my site. I hope this helps! Now select Yes if you wish to continue and let’s move on

Step 13:

Navigate back to your home screen and select;

  • Add-ons

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-add-ons

Step 14:

Select the box icon @ the top left of your screen
xbmckodi-kryptonv17-addons-install from zip icon

Step 17:

Select the file that says;

If you were successful with installing this Repository, you will get an Add-On Enabled icon the top right corner of your screen. Be patient as this may take a few minutes.

Step 18:

Now, select;

  • Install from repository

xbmckodi-kryptonv17-addons browser-Install from repository

  • Covenant (the next gen for EXODUS)
  • f4mTester (for live streaming)
  • Made In Canada IPTV
  • SportsDevil
